In Yemen, new details are emerging about the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led bombing massacre of schoolchildren in Yemen’s northern Saada province Thursday. The United Nations says the airstrike hit a bus carrying children from a summer camp, killing and injuring dozens of children. Most of the victims were between 10 and 13 years old. This is eyewitness Moussa Abdullah.
Moussa Abdullah: “The strike happened in the middle of the market, and it targeted a bus carrying children. Our shops were open, and the shoppers were walking around as usual. All of those who died were residents, children and shop owners.”
U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres is calling for an independent investigation into the attack.
